What is the proposed scope and scale of the project?

The proposed solar project is sized at 4.7MW DC, and will consist of two solar subarrays and one battery energy storage system.  The southernmost sub-array #1, adjacent to Old South Road, will be comprised of 4500 solar panels. The northernmost sub-array (#2), located adjacent to Milestone Road, will be comprised of 6300 solar panels. Each Maxeon solar panel is rated at 435watt, and considered to be amongst the highest-performing and efficient available. The Tesla Battery is rated at 1.265 MW/2.529MWH, and will be utilized for peak demand management and local grid resiliency.
